Get To Know Gary Ditto And Who — A Staffing Company
Gary is the president of Who — A Staffing Company. He founded the company in the fall of 2011 with the goal of creating an organization that equally serves the talent acquisition needs of the client, as well as the personal aspirations of the talented professionals being represented. As president, Gary oversees the strategic direction of the Who, spearheads its business development, and leads client relationship management.
“Surrounding yourself with the right people in your life affords you with the opportunities you might not have otherwise,” says Gary. “Good people doing good things and trying to take care of one another generally works out in the end.”
Starting Who, Gary recognized the critical value of pairing skilled and experienced people with the right roles in the business world. Who provides a range of different staffing services:
- IT staffing, connecting businesses with skilled IT professionals
- Business practice recruitment, placing sales, marketing, and HR professionals with businesses
- Support and development services for candidates
“What I always saw as a gap in the industry, is that [recruiters] were only in it for themselves,” says Gary. “The client was always a well-served market, but the candidate market was always an underserved piece of that equation. It didn’t really make sense.”
The key differentiator for Gary and Who was in promoting a recruitment model that helped the candidate, in addition to the client and the recruitment company. By supporting them as well, Gary has developed a unique offering that has brought more business back to Who from candidates they previously found work for.
“I can’t tell you how many times that mentality has turned back around and benefitted us,” says Gary. “We really pride ourselves on the candidate experience through the hiring process.”
